FORMULA

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 11*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) + 5*a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5) - a(n-6), for n>6 (conjectured).

a(n) = 1/4*((1-sqrt(2))^n*(4-3*sqrt(2)*n) + (1+sqrt(2))^n*(4+3*sqrt(2)*n)) - 1 - n (conjectured). - Eric W. Weisstein, May 08 2017

a(n) = Lucas(n, 2) + 3*n*Fibonacci(n, 2) - n - 1, where Lucas(n, 2) = A002203(n) and Fibonacci(n, 2) = A000129(n) (conjectured). - Eric W. Weisstein, May 08 2017

G.f. (subject to the above conjectures. In fact all three conjectures are equivalent): (3*x-3*x^2-2*x^3-4*x^4+3*x^5-x^6)/(1-3*x+x^2+x^3)^2. - Robert Israel, May 08 2017

a[n_] := Block[{g = CirculantGraph[2 n, {1, n}]}, -1 + ParallelSum[ Boole@ ConnectedGraphQ@ Subgraph[g, s], {s, Subsets@ Range[2 n]}]]; Array[a, 8]
